With the Sony Digital8 DCR-TRV460 camcorder I can process the following tapes:

8mm or Hi8™ tapes

Hi8 tape
Digital8 Camcorder Tapes
Although they are all digital camcorder tapes, Mini DV, MicroMV and Digital8 are three different tape formats and will not work in the same cameras. Please look at your camera and see if it says MiniDV, Micro MV or Digital 8 on the side and then choose the appropriate button on the left.

A Digital8 Digital Handycam camcorder can record "digitally" using either a Hi8 or standard 8mm tape. Hi8 tape is recommended to achieve optimal performance. If a standard 8mm tape is used, the same camcorder should be used for recording and playback.

Hi-8 tapes used for Digital8 will yield 50% of the Hi 8 recording time. In other words, a 120 minute Hi8 will give you 60 minutes of Digital8 recording capacity. Thanks to the http://www.tapestockonline.com/ website for this information
